This is our collection of cool sports cars from decades past.
I have a soft spot for this car, and I remember drawing it many times back when it was released back in 1984. It was a unique car that I read about in the March 1984 issue of Popular Mechanics. Unique in that it had a plastic shell as a body, instead of steel.This one is a shiny red 1985 Pontiac Fiero 2M6 found on the streets of Cabbagetown in Toronto. I watched the ... Check out this car!
While walking around Santa Fe New Mexico, I crossed paths with this red Triumph TR4A IRS, very much an endangered car having been produced for only 2 years between 1965-1967. At the time, this sports car sold for about $2,500. The car was a new edition of the TR4, and had a new chassis and rear suspension that was intended to provide a more comfortable ride for a sports ... Check out this car!

I've seen one of these before, a gorgeous red Jaguar E-Type 4.2 (aka Jaguar XK-E). Last time, I chased it down the street in London England but could only get some shots from behind.

I was very surprised to walk out of No Frills and see this Fiero SE 2M6, one that I believe is a 1986 model. You can see it isn't the fastback model which was offered later on.It has been years since I have seen this car! I remember clearly back in 1984 when it was introduced. This car got a lot of publicity at the time due to the fact it was one of the first cars that I ... Check out this car!

Here we have a great example of what Endangered Cars is all about - appreciation of car design from years past. I just can't get over the backward steps that so many car manufacturers are making with their designs the past 20 years. I think you could draw a line somewhere in the very early 1990's.So, here we go a perfect example of what I am talking about, the 1980 ... Check out this car!
